Well Spock could help with some things like shields and possibly computer tech after all he is highly rated at that technology. But I suspect that he is mostly working on making New Vulcan strong and safe for the Vulcans. Back on USS Enterprise when are we going to see Spock and Lt have a baby? The Abrams 1701 should have a nursery for the 5 year voyage :D This also brings up the Carol Marcus and Captain Kirk relationship too. Is there going to be a David on Enterprise? The New timeline Carol's life is different than it was in the original...... Going to be interesting to see what happens next.

You can't "fix the timeline" or "reset the timeline"; all you would do is spawn yet another alternate universe. Frankly, I'm glad they went with that approach; Trek time travel was always asinine.


Did they ever actually establish that? It isn't the impression I got. Actually, my impression is that they're just inconsistent. Though maybe there are different sorts of time travel technologies with different consequences?

Although the impetus for those are events that haven't happened yet. It depends on how the whole time travel thing unravels.

Actually that might go for a LOT of the stuff we see in Trek. From the wormhole prophets to 31st century temporal agents.

I suppose I like the idea of different sorts of time travel with different sorts of consequences. Where maybe the Abramsverse slides along parrallel to the timeline we know.
